Key Game 1: Ballicopter flies

Find Ballicopter's key on the keyboard (Spacebar). This is the only active key in this game.
Pressing Spacebar formally means: toggle on/off; stop - go - stop - go etc. In future formal keyboard navigation - for instance with Windows keystrokes for Dialog boxes, the child will use Spacebar to check/uncheck a check-box in a menu, select or deselect, and toggle Jaws screenreader speech on and off.

Read this to the child:

When the game starts, Ballicopter flies high up in the sky over the fields of Ballyland.
Press Ballicopter's key to make him land.
Press Ballicopter's key again to let him take off again.
Listen out for the animals that meet him when he lands.
If you are in luck, you will hear the duck.
The game will be different every time you play it.

Settings

In the Settings you can set how fast Ballicopter moves.
